Fairies and Flies.

The Rock park plays host to allsorts! The Flycatcher obviously wants to get in with the fairies .Perhaps a mention in the “Doddie” sequel? I can heartily recommend a coffee at the cafe there -especially in this weather: you may well see a Flycatcher , but the fairies are very wary.DSC_9713_filteredDSC_1377_filteredDSC_0231_filtered

Kes and Drago.

Kes on postTaken early this Morning on track near upper Gilwern Rhogo….He was on the wall  posts pouncing on leather jackets on the track…Yesterday evening near the same spot I was watching young wheatears performing on the wall  when suddenly one shot across the  front of the vehicle..  A hobby suddenly appeared from nowhere chasing it around a gorse bush… what a turn of speed and manouverability  virtually  turning on a sixpence.. For  a medium-sized raptor Wow…The wheatear had sense to bury itself in the gorse bush… the hobby lighted on the ground close by  and just as I was reaching for the camera he disappeared  as fast as he appeared…”What a bird” The scene would have had Chris Packam Rubbing his thighs!!!!.dragon 4 spotted chaser,A four spotted Chaser LLyngwyn Lake.
